Red thongs, blushing wars, and think before speaking


Hmmm Ted has obviously been told by Jay to motivate everyone more. The sales are down and Ted is trying to push. So far he has attempted to introduce a round of applause for every sale, a twenty pound win for the board leader and occasional bouts of cheering.

This morning as he comes into the office he sings "Scooby Dooby Doo" and then points and winks.
I ask him politely if he is drunk from last night which does not go down at all well.

Ted then tries to give us a big speech,
"Team remember you have to be the best sales team you can be!" He says chest heaving with emotion.
"Seize your targets and smash them."
I have been preparing to make a sarcastic comment towards this but unfortunately lean back in preparation of my own wit and instead fall backwards off my chair.

While I seem to do fall over a lot this was pretty spectacular... and a bad day to wear a bright red thong. As the team explodes with laughter I pick myself up blushing. Hopefully they will be too polite to comment.

"Wow Kate you've gone as red as hmmmm maybe a pair of very red pants." Jamie says wickedly. "Wouldn't you agree Simon?"
Simon goes bright red as well now we look like the tomato twins.

Great I just flashed two work colleagues. I'm like an unpaid stripper I'm doing it for free.
"Kate I think you embarrassed Simon." Rob observes.
"No I'm fine its all fine." Simon stammers going even redder.
"I don't think Simon liked your underwear Kate." Jamie says.

I glare at him, "Look can you all just get your heads out of my pants." I shout.

I did not just say that.....
" mean," I say weakly but now everyone is laughing too hard to notice. Even Ethan and Simon....

I think I just took the lead in the blushing war with Simon...

  2. Ouch, I guess physical pain is nothing compared to this embarrassing moment so I'm not going to ask if you hurt yourself when falling. (I hope you didn't, though.)

    Hilarious post! Leave it to Jamie to make such comments.

  12. You are very accident prone.

    ReplyDelete
  13. It happens to the best of us. The falling out of the chair, I mean, not the accidentally flashing people while wearing a red thong.

  15. Oh my god...I would have freaked out!!! At least you said something, instead of paralyzing. Right?

  25. Hey at least you got the bod to wear a thong. Look at the bright side.

    ReplyDelete
  26. wow...hehehehe...that is a real embarrassment for a girl, I know, surpassed only by a boob falling out of her top...
    For guys, it would be like wearing our tiny Jack Tripper shorts and having your trouser snake pop out...which has happened to me...hahahahaha...

  27. I worked in a supermarket when I was 19. We had to wear an overall dress thing which fastened with poppers. It was the summer and I only had underwear on underneath. I caught the damn thing on a trolley and ripped open all the poppers top to bottom in front of all the butchers. Having the body of a fit 19 year old, all I cared about was if my underwear was nice! Ah the days...

  28. well look on the bright side... flashing a red thong is better than granny panties.

    ReplyDelete
  29. OH SNAP. If you could condense that story, it would be a real "FML" moment. Haha.

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  30. OMG, Kate! I am blushing for you. Thong Song. Awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm afraid I would have been right there with Simon; as red faced like a sunburnt zit.
    However, a red thong would definitely have taken the sting out of any embarrassment. :-)

  32. Ian -Sadly not on that occasion. Mortifying does not even cover it.

    The Peach Tart - Well it was a memorable start!

    missykimmy - I almost wish I had - if I had been hurt I might have got sympathy!

    Tami G - I did consider sulking and storming off but thought it would amuse everyone even more.

    Kato - It was either laugh or cry!

    Hiding Myself From Me - Granny pants might be less sexy but at least less of my butt would have been showing!
